Locum and Insurge are the two libraries used primarily by SOPAC. They serve as a layer of abstraction to the data. Insurge manages the social aspect (tags, reviews, ratings), while Locum manages the connection to the ILS via the connector. Both libraries use a different database from that of Drupal.
There are no packages for Debian MDB2 yet, you can install it via pear:
# apt-get install php-pear # pear install MDB2 # pear install MDB2#mysql
Download the Locum and Insurge libraries from SVN:
# cd /usr/local/lib # svn co http://dobby.darienlibrary.org/svn/locum/trunk/ locum # svn co http://dobby.darienlibrary.org/svn/insurge/trunk/ insurge
$ mysql -u root mysql> create database scas; mysql> grant all privileges on scas.* to scas_user@'localhost' identified by 'scas_pass'; mysql> flush privileges; mysql> exit
This file will provide the connection information to a DB libraries:
# nano /usr/local/etc/locum_insurge_dsn.php
It should contain:
<?php $dsn = 'mysql://scas_user:scas_pass@localhost/scas';
If you customize the name of the database, remember to edit the sql file:
# nano /usr/local/lib/insurge/sql/scas_insurge.sql
$ mysql -u root -p < /usr/local/lib/insurge/sql/scas_insurge.sql
# nano /usr/local/lib/insurge/config/insurge.ini
The variables in insurge.ini are empty. The default values are too long and cause MySQL errors.
Here is a sample of insurge.ini
; This is the Locum configuration file ; General configuration options for your installation of Insurge. [insurge_config] dsn_file = "/usr/local/etc/locum_insurge_dsn.php" ; This is where you configure your repository membership information. ; ; parent_server is the server name of the repository parent server you have been ; told to use. ; group_id = The group ID you have been given by your repository admin. ; These configuration points are OPTIONAL and are only necessary if you are ; participating in a repository relationship. [repository_info] parent_server = "" group_id = "" group_key = ""
The same procedure applies to Locum
# nano /usr/local/lib/locum/sql/scas_locum.sql # mysql < /usr/local/lib/locum/sql/scas_locum.sql # nano /usr/local/lib/locum/sql/locum_init.sql # mysql < /usr/local/lib/locum/sql/locum_init.sql # nano /usr/local/lib/locum/config/locum.ini # mkdir /usr/local/var # mkdir /usr/local/var/log
Configure the DSN:
[locum_config] dsn_file = "/usr/local/etc/locum_insurge_dsn.php"
And the information for your Koha installation:
[ils_config] ils = "koha"; ils_version = "30x" ils_server = "localhost" ils_harvest_port = "80"
The rest depends on your Koha configuration.
